    Help me - eye problem

    Since yesterday I have had some kind of small peiece of dirt in my eye however I can't get it out. I'm not exactly sure where the piece of dirt is, it feels as if it's either in my eye lid or behind my eye.

    I've tried washing it with a flannel but it's still there. My eye kind of hurts every time I blink.

    Any tips?

    I get this sometimes and it's a right pain in the backside!

    Sometimes it's just an eyelash poking your eye when you blink. Check it's not that and if it isn't go rinse it in shower/sink

    you may av scratch the eyeball and thats what u can feel

    might seem odd but have you tried blowing your nose ! I had something in my eye once, couldnt shift it but blew my nose & it came out

    whatever you do though dont rub it as you might scratch your eye !

    reminds me as well once i had to get something removed from my eye as it was stuck, so the eye hospital used a small dremmel like instrument to remove it, i nearly passed out !!!

    Good luck JFK.

    I had a speck of plaster in my eye a few years back - spent the whole day trying to get it out. Tried blinking it out, an eye bath, I even had a bath (just water, no bubbles) so I could put my head under water with my eyes open and swish around but that didn't work either.

    In the end I admitted defeat and went to casualty - they had it out in no time.

    Thanks for the advice.

    Hopefully I won't have as big a problem as you had. Hope your eyes are OK now.:thumbsup:[/COLOR]

    considered you might have a small sti?

    I had exactly the same problem a few years ago. Went to the doctors and I had an ulcer on the inside of my eyelid. He gave me antibiotic ointment. Can now buy this over the counter.

    [COLOR="Red"]I still haven't been able to get the dirt/eye lash out of my eye. I have tried rinsing it with water aswell as that eye bath thing.

    Maybe I should go A&E as I want it out ASAP?[/COLOR]

    sounds like you may have the beginnings of conjunctivitus, it actually feels like a bit of grit is in the eye but its the infection.

    You'll need antibiotic drops for the eye if thats what it is.

    Hope you feel better soon.

    eye drops m8 :thumbsup:

    A+E isn't really for such issues. Ring up NHS direct, they might help, i always ring them for help

    I'm pretty sure it's not an infection as it just came on all of a sudden yesterday while I was reading the paper. Something fell from my eye lash (or an eye lash its self) into my eye. [/COLOR]

    [COLOR="Red"]Aren't eye drops just for stopping sore eyes?

    I tried an eye bath thing that the lady in the chemist recommended but it hasn't done anything.[/COLOR]

    ill +1 that it might be an eye infection coming on, sometimes the change in the air can affect the eyes to cause such a problem in your case, you'l never know until you got to docs etc

    I would make an appointment to get it checked before you end up with an infection

    Have you tried pulling your top eyelid over the bottom one.

    Feels a bit uncomfortable for a few seconds, but it can sometimes dislodge.

    Also, they do recommend that you dont put normal water in your eyes!
